1) Long queues are now gone



You do not see any long queues outside the doctor’s clinic. The digital world in 2010, brought in the facility of clearing the queues outside the healthcare clinics. Providing relief from standing under the sun and on a harsh winter morning. A major Transformation of Indian Healthcare.

There was an influx of new and better facility hospital in 2011. Private players like Max and Fortis opened many of their branches. Along with this government hospitals also saw a new increase in number. This brought India on par with the international facilities.


3) The good news




The better part of healthcare came in 2012. With Polio almost eradicated, the nation achieved a big win with complete end to the disease. Something that each Indian was really proud of. Thanks to Mr. Bachchan and the campaign of “Do Boond Zindagi Ke Liye”.


4) Transformation of Indian healthcare with rural areas in reach



Gandhi once said, “Future of India, lies in its villages”. Standing up to his ideals transformation of Indian Healthcare in 2013 took shape in that particular direction. Rural India was now linked with all the healthcare facilities like the urban sector.

The diagnosis was a step before the treatment. When the diagnosis was not provided how could one get treated? This is indeed something that changed in 2016. New labs came up to diagnose chronic conditions. Diagnosis of medical illnesses like Cancer and Diabetes now became easy.
